<span style="font-size: 20px">&gt; Carla 2.4.4 and 2.5.0 released</span><br/>
On <i>2022-07-16</i> by<i> falkTX</i>

Hello again everyone, it is 2 Carla releases on the same day!
<a href="" class="external free" rel="nofollow" target="_blank">Carla</a>
is an audio plugin host, with support for many audio drivers and plugin formats.<br/>
It has some nice features like automation of parameters via MIDI CC (and send output back as MIDI too) and full OSC control.
The reason for 2 releases is so there is an update to the 2.4.x series, being shipped in some Linux distributions that do not update packages to new versions.<br/>
Hopefully the bugfix is possible to push-through for such cases.<br/>
The <a href="" target="_blank">2.4.4 version</a> does not have prebuilt binaries, it is meant only for those building from source.<br/>
For the <a href="" target="_blank">2.5.0 version</a>, we have a couple new things.

JSFX (those nice little FX from REAPER) make an appearance, contributed by Jean Pierre Cimalando.<br/>
Alike LV2 handling on Carla, you do not need to manually scan for these, Carla will automatically find them if you have some paths set.<br/>
If you have run REAPER before, you most likely will have a bunch of new plugins available to use right away.<br/>
Note that custom UIs for those are not supported yet, to be implemented later.

<h3>SDL engine driver</h3>
A new engine driver makes an apparance, for SDL (both v1 and v2) which is handy when building for systems where neither JACK or RtAudio works.<br/>
The main targets for this driver are HaikuOS and Web-Assembly, the latter one which has already been verified to work.<br/>
I am sure there will still be more tweaks needed, but at least audio should now work on HaikuOS too. I will investigate more in depth later.

<h3>Updated core modules</h3>
And finally, built-in DPF and JUCE have been updated to their latest versions.<br/>
This required changing some deep internal code to match the updated APIs, so it cannot be pushed as bugfix.

That is mostly it for now, there are a few other minor changes and fixes too, changelog follows below.
<li>Add JSFX plugin support</li>
<li>Add SDL engine driver</li>
<li>Adapt engine code to allow single-threaded web-assembly builds</li>
<li>Fix macOS installer to run without rosetta2</li>
<li>Do not use -fno-gnu-unique on BSD</li>
<li>Fix inaccurate MIDI CC rounding</li>
<li>Fix one more python3.10 compatibility issue</li>
<li>Fix one more Windows UTF-16 issue</li>
<li>Support mod:volts as LV2 unit</li>
<li>Update dependency list in</li>
<li>Use full driver settings dialog if opened via menu and engine is not running</li>
<li>Update built-in DPF</li>
<li>Update built-in JUCE to 7.0.1</li>
